Executive Discusses Risk Coding in Texas Series

Carine Leslie, Senior Manager, is leading a webinar in a national rural health education series this spring. The series is sponsored by the Rural and Community Health Institute (RCHI) of Texas A&M Health and gathers leaders of rural hospitals as well as healthcare providers in rural Texas and across the country.

On March 19, 12-1 p.m. CST (1-2 p.m. ET), Leslie will present, “Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) Coding: Capturing and Reporting Risk in Your Patient Population—A Key to Success Under Value-Based Arrangements.” In this presentation, she will provide an overview of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services-Hierarchical Condition Categories (CMS-HCC), explain the new morbidity classification, ICD-10-CM, and discuss the importance of code specificity. Leslie also will cover changes in audits of Medicare Advantage plans, HCC methodologies, and documentation requirements to support HCC coding and achieve compliance.

Register to attend the webinar.

The RCHI works to reduce health disparities in Texas and across the country by increasing access to healthcare for rural communities. Through educational programs and other services, it bridges the gap between rural healthcare professionals and policymakers and researchers to improve the quality and safety of healthcare.
